I received this car seat for free in order to facilitate this review but all opinions are my own. We have been using this carseat rear facing for about a month and it is great. I love that the bucket pockets eliminate digging around for the buckles under my little guy. The adjustment on the shoulder harness is a breeze! We had this installed rear facing in our Corolla and it was pretty hard to turn the knob and tighten the harness. The car frame around the tire was right at the knob so your hand couldn't turn it. I switched the seat to our SUV and have no issues with turning the knob for the harness.
I bought this seat in April of this year, and today noticed that 2 out of the 3 pins securing the styrofoam to the base have pulled through the holes, leaving it completely unsecured. I am extremely unimpressed that this seat has only lasted me 3 months before breaking, and I can't imagine if I didn't notice earlier and we happened to get into an accident. I will not be buying another Evenflow brand product in the future.
My great grandson is more comfortable in this model. It is easier to get him in and out of the car seat.
I bought this seat in November 2014 when I purchased my SUV. I love that the buckle pockets eliminate digging around for the buckles under my little guy. The adjustment on the shoulder harness is a breeze. The tension right adjustment knobs are amazing, it makes it 100 times easier to tighten the harness.
